Wall Street's love affair with Google ( GOOG) showed its stormy side this week. Many a tear had to fall before the two sides finally made up. CFO George Reyes' candid statement Tuesday that "our growth rates are slowing" sparked a selloff in Google's stock and the broader market. It took a corrective statement from Google and an analyst conference to reassure Wall Street that the Internet giant's prospects are still bright. In the end, both Wall Street's unrealistic expectations and Google's unconventional habits were both downgraded, perhaps boosting the chances the parties will forge a more lasting union. By the end of the week, the stock was slightly above where it closed last Friday. Meanwhile, former flame Intel ( INTC) also made the headlines at the start and end of the week. On Monday, JMP Securities upgraded the stock, citing the potential benefits of Apple's ( AAPL) new notebooks. More momentum in chip stocks took it higher through Wednesday. The good times ended Friday, when Intel warned that its first-quarter results would fall short of its previous forecasts, making this the second consecutive quarter the chip giant has lowered guidance. It dropped 0.8% on Friday. Interestingly, the rest of the tech sector -- and the broad market -- held up well for most of Friday. News that the services sector of the economy hummed along with the manufacturing sector helped relieve anxiety over Intel. Still, sellers materialized by the close. The Nasdaq Composite fell 0.4% to 2302. The Dow Jones Industrial Average dropped 3.9 points, or 0.04%, to 11,021, and the S&P 500 eased 0.15% to 1287. For the week, the Dow finished down 40 points, or 0.4%, at 11,021. The S&P lost 2 points, or 0.2%. The Nasdaq reversed the trend, rising 0.7%.
